Johnes is one of three changes from last weekend’s defeat to Harlequins at Ashton Gate, with England Sevens star Grace Crompton replacing the injured Jasmine Joyce on the wing. Joyce has successfully undergone shoulder surgery, ruling her out for the remainder of the season, but will return to action ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

The Bears qualified for the Premier 15s play-offs for the first time thanks to the four-try bonus-point earned last weekend, and a win at Sandy Park could see them secure a home semi-final, depending on Harlequins’ result against Loughborough Lightning.

Bristol Bears Women team to play Exeter Chiefs Women at Sandy Park (2pm KO):

15. Kayleigh Powell, 14. Grace Crompton, 13. Phoebe Murray, 12. Amber Reed (cc), 11. Courtney Keight, 10. Lucie Skuse, 9. Keira Bevan; 1. Simi Pam, 2. Hannah West, 3. Sarah Bern, 4. Delaney Burns, 5. Abbie Ward (cc), 6. Alisha Butchers, 7. Manon Johnes, 8. Rownita Marston.

System players: 16. Holly Phillips, 17. China Kill, 18. Ellie Mulhearn, 19. Siwan Lillicrap, 20. Alice Lockwood, 21. Lucy Burgess, 22. Elinor Snowsill, 23. Ella Lovibond
